First set - check the energy on Stranger - they're determined to make this new tune work. Sugaree is outstanding. Otherwise, workhorse-good.
Second set - that Playin' jam simply blazes - I like that little preamble they do before the song proper. 1980 was the Year of the Wheel - aside from that gorgeous-on-gorgeous version on Jer's first solo album, 1980 is my favourite year for this tune. Peaked at Atlanta later on in the year, IMHO...

Subject: Absoulte Rythmic SOUL~~~~~~!!!!!
Thanks you GD and Charlie Miller for recording this one. Moments in time captured forever. I can hear the venue and the ambience that night on tis recording. That is what it is all about. The interaction betweeen the band members and the audience. Everyone with a heartbeat was doncing their asses off to this absolutley smokin show that night.
Sugaree!!! One of the longest and most passionate of them all here. I think there is a better one somewhere but I can't remember right now. Rockin. I miss you JERRY!!!!
The China>RIder, Promised LAnd to close the first set just blows me away. The energy was over the top. They were a ROck~n~rOlL band right? Wowza!! JErry, Brent, Bobby, Phil Mickey and Billy all just bringin it for all they are worth...a Helluva lot!
The second set Althea is a great treat to comlememnt the first set China>Rider. Pure Jerry soul.
I could go on, but why? This show is just awesome. Please sit back an listen to this one loud and close. You WILL absoulutely be moved by the spirit and sould of the GRATEFUL DEAD at theri early 80's finest.
It was a great period in their history IMHO. Not to take anything away from the many other periods. I love them all! But I love this period so much for some reason. I think it's Brent. And Jerry of course.
I will close by saying thank you to whoever the hell came up with archive.org and the GD addition to it. Genius!!!! I feel like a kid in the candy sotrye with virtually every show the ever played right here at my fingertips. I am FOREVER GRATEFUL to all thos who made this possible. Especially Cahrlie Miller, and Jerry Garcia~!
Peace, my people.
Subject: lost in the ozone again!
i cringe when i think of what i missed here. after alabama, i told my buds we were leaving and i left and drove 30 miles home.
thank you guys for posting this historical show, i am so grateful that i can hear what i missed.
Subject: No longer the best recording
At the time that previous reviews were written, this was doubtless the best recording of this show available. However, it's not really that good: to bassy and too tin-canny, both at the same time, requiring a lot of fancy EQing. Furthermore, there is now a better recording extant that requires NO EQing. See other copies.
Subject: Top 10 on anybodies list
Subject: My First
These are also some of the finest shounding FOB audience tapes on the entire GD archive. The sound at the show was CRANKED, one of the loudest shows I have ever been to.
Play the althea and weep.
if you like 1980 check out
one of my other favorite shows
Subject: Liquid sunshine
I had the car so we all came down from Orono--a bag full of microdot and a watermelon soaked with vodka--folks without tickets knocked the fence down. These Frenchies in Lewiston had never seen so many freaks.
The show was amazing---I danced my ass off. Funny because 10 years later I was working as a paramedic in Lewiston listening to the stories of how us "freaks" took over the city that day. Too funny.
